Okay, I am nerdishly in love with pretty much everything you guys said. You’re all so creative, and it’s clear the same old damsel in distress isn’t what’s expected of a princess these days. I seriously wish I had enough goodies to hand out to all of you, but I had to whittle it down. Below are a couple of my faves:
- Princesses must be able to charm wild animals with their singing voice.- Rachael L
- Remind yourself! You are never ugly, the mirror is just broken, or people need glasses.- Sarah M
- A princess must have hair straight out of a Pantene commercial. If it doesn’t have a shine factor of at least 8, she’ll be suspected of being an imposter.- Lauren K
- Wear comfortable high heels, nothing is more unattractive than a girl limping around the ball room saying I'm alright while they are clutching onto your arms crying ouch every five seconds.- Ryan
Rachael, Sarah, Lauren, and Ryan, please send me your address via the contact form here on my website, and I will send you each a signed bookmark. You guys get an honorable mention for your general awesomeness!
As for our big winner… when I came across this entry, I laughed so hard I nearly peed myself:
1st RULE: You do NOT talk about BEING A PRINCESS
2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about BEING A PRINCESS
3rd RULE: If someone says "stop" or goes limp... Wait. I'm thinking about the wrong book, aren't I?
Ha! Even posting this makes me giggle! So congratulations, Kayla B, you win a signed ARC of The Selection (and I’ll shove a bookmark in there too)!
Thank you guys for all playing along. And if you didn’t win, hop on over to my YouTube channel for another chance!
